Orion Group Holdings Announces $80M Contract Award for Port Everglades Bulkhead Replacement Project

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL — Orion Group Holdings, Inc., a specialty construction company, announces a significant contract award valued at nearly $80 million for its Marine construction business. The contract was awarded by Port Everglades Seaport Engineering & Construction Division through Moss Construction as managing general contractor for the Port Everglades Bulkhead Replacement Project - Group 1, a pivotal infrastructure upgrade at one of the nation’s busiest ports. Orion has supported Port Everglades and worked with Moss successfully on previous projects.

Orion Group Holdings won the Port Everglades Bulkhead Replacement Project award through a competitive bid process. The scope of work includes the replacement of approximately 2,240 linear feet of aging steel sheet pile bulkheads, including large diameter combi-wall systems, soil anchors, and encapsulated concrete caps. In addition, the project will address the aging North Bulkhead at the Entrance Channel, which spans 1,200 feet and is vital for the safe and smooth flow of maritime traffic. The project will conclude in late 2026.

“We are excited to continue our relationship with Moss and the Port Everglades Seaport Engineering & Construction Division by delivering this critical marine project that will modernize and strengthen the Port's capabilities. With our deep marine construction expertise, we look forward to supporting port business into the future,” said Travis Boone, Chief Executive Officer of Orion Group Holdings, Inc. “This project not only reinforces our commitment to maintaining the highest standards of maritime infrastructure, but also ensures Port Everglades continues to serve as a critical hub for the world-class cruise industry and the growing international cargo and petroleum business.”
